    He comes across pretty terrible. Mike Adams sounds more interested. DeCastro looks like those interviewing him are annoying him.

    Maybe he was being interviewed by Ed Bouchette and the feeling was mutual.

    This was my thought as well, almost bordering on being angry. Ummmm.... you are a first round pick, probable starter on a team (and with a fan base) desparate for good line play. Get used to the questions and have some fun (maybe take Keisel's tractor for a ride around St. Vincent's).

    Another summer camp at Saint Vincent College

    July 26, 2012
    By Ray Fittipaldo / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



    Players have been known to show up at camp in all sorts of stylish rides, but it's likely none ever arrived at Saint Vincent driving a tractor as Brett Keisel did Wednesday.

    Veteran defensive end Brett Keisel arrived at Saint Vincent College in style Wednesday afternoon. Well, if not style, then Keisel's definition of it.

    While most of his teammates were showing up in Cadillac Escalades, BMWs and other assorted luxury cars, Keisel drove an orange Kubota front-loading tractor onto campus before he checked into his dorm room. Keisel has made a habit of arriving to camp with a grand entrance, and he said his inspiration for the tractor was a nod to his youth when he worked on farms in his native Wyoming.

    "I love driving these things because it reminds me of my childhood," Keisel said. "I grew up swathing hay and plowing fields and planting fields.

    "I grew up in Wyoming driving one of these bad boys working on a farm. Hard work pays off. You have to deal with adversity, all the things we have to deal coming into this camp."

    Keisel has a friend at Murphy Family, Inc., in Washington, Pa., who allows him to use tractors on his local property. He said he drove the tractor about 20 miles Wednesday, including up Route 30 into Latrobe. Along the way, he received some strange glances from other drivers.

    "It took me maybe an hour," he said. "I got some looks. People were like, 'What is this guy doing?' "

    The tractor wasn't the only symbolic part of Keisel's entrance. He sported a T-shirt with the words "Hunt for VII" emblazoned on the front along with a picture of Keisel in his trademark bow-and-arrow sack pose. A Super Bowl victory this season would be the seventh for the Steelers.

    The 11-year veteran also showed up in midseason form in terms of facial hair. "I let it go a little bit earlier," he said. "I'm excited to see what it looks like. I got about two months going right now. It should be longer and more beautiful than ever."
